The Freestone Support Team is the Best

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Here are just a few things I've valued greatly from the team there: • Speedy and accommodating turnaround on contract updates so we could meet the needs of our members
• Pleasant, knowledgeable, professional, and on-the-ball support for our live programs
• Thorough and helpful presenter prep sessions
• Timely, kind, and patient responses to my many questions on everything from event setup to attendee credit
Regarding the platform itself, just a few features we use:
• Layout customization for live webcasts/webinars
• Self-paced courses with credit
• Credit submission requirements such as polling, checkpoints, surveys, and certificates
• Attendee Q&A
• Reports to verify credit submission, program attendance, attendee questions, polling responses, etc.
• Much more!
Really I can't say enough about how much I appreciate the team and the Freestone product. It's a great feeling to know I'm in good hands with them in every aspect of our LMS use.

Vorteile:

I've been using Freestone from Community Brands for a few years now and not only have I been pleased with the look, customization, and functionality of the platform, but also overjoyed with the support I receive from team there.

Nachteile:

There are a couple of things that frustrate users regarding credit submission.

Thank you very much for all the kind words, Morgan! This is fantastic to hear! We look forward to maintaining this standard of service! We will continue to enhance the platform and will review the credit submission process for additional efficiencies. Thank you for the feedback!

Air & Waste Management Association Review

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: When I do have issues the best part of the company is the Technical Moderator that is always there to assist. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], is the person that I have worked with for about 5 years. He is helpful during the live webinar, but for other issues that arise. For example, putting the webinar information into the Freestone system, problems with registration or assisting with PowerPoint issues.

Vorteile:

The Freestone product has been easy to use, after I was trained and especially after I had used it for a period of time. Once the presenters are set up in the system, the webinar just flows. This includes the Q&A , polling and chat components, that all work well and are useful for the webinar.

Nachteile:

We often get request for animation, fly in slides for he webinar. at this time those features are not available.

Antwort von Community Brands

vor 4 Jahren

Thank you very much for the kind words about our the team and the webinar technology! We look forward to maintaining this standard of service. At this time presentations with animations can be shared through the screenshare functionality, but we will continue to look at ways to further enhance the webinar features. Thank you very much for your feedback Robin!

An adequate system, a bit burdensome

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall I have been satisfied with Freestone and when I have had issues, their customer support it quick to respond.

Vorteile:

The admin portal for Freestone is comprehensive and includes a lot of features and functionality, but it is not intuitive or easy to use. Every time I login, it takes a few minutes to figure out where I need to navigate to in order to find what I am looking for. Once I find it, updates are easy to make and take effect immediately.

Nachteile:

Too much going on in the dashboard. It is overwhelming and needs a better design/layout.

Antwort von Community Brands

vor 5 Jahren

Thank you very much for the feedback! We will continue to make updates to the platform to make it more user friendly, while still remaining comprehensive. We will be releasing a new analytics dashboard in the coming weeks that will offer insights into key performance indicators such as top learners and courses, as well as adding business intelligence insights. Thank you again!

SC Bar

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

That we can track attendance and verify exactly date, time and how many times a user launches, goes into their program and completes it. One of our needs is to obtain certificates and reports that verifies EXACT attendance to be reported to our Commission. This is imperative as these reports need to follow professionalism and an ethical duty.

Nachteile:

If two exact programs are integrated from our database I cannot delete out the unnecessary program in this software and my service rep has to complete this.

Antwort von Community Brands

vor 2 Jahren

Thank you for the review Jane! We are happy to support the specific needs of the bar! We look forward to continuing to enhance the admin experience to put more power into your hands. Thank you for the feedback!

Simple to use and has most of the tools you will need starting out.

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Freestone has enabled us to start our online learning area for our members enabling them to receive CE's through the system. It's really opened up a new world of learning for our members and we are just getting started.

Vorteile:

This is a simple product to use. I like the simple authoring tools. It makes it easy to create surveys, add materials and create learning.

Nachteile:

There needs to be improvement in the ability to talk to YourMembership. It's a feature we don't use right now because it doesn't work very well. We would like our members to be able to see on the YM side what CE's they have and the communication between the two is clunky.

Antwort von Community Brands

vor 3 Jahren

Thank you for the kind words about the product's ease of use Kaylee! We look forward to continuing to enhance the user experience for both admins and learners. Your Account Director will be connecting with you to discuss enabling the most up to date credit integration between Freestone and YM as I believe that will address your concerns about ce tracking. Thank you again for the feedback!

Exceptional Customer Service

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

Freestone always goes above and beyond for every issue, request, and inquiry. They will always do their best to make something work for us, and are honest and straightforward when something is beyond the scope of their system.

Nachteile:

The only issue I have experienced with Freestone is integration with ProTech AMS. However, their team is extremely proactive in addressing issues.

Thank you for the kind words Caitlin! We will do everything we can to maintain this high standard of support and service! We will continue to work with your team and ProTech on further integration enhancements. Thank you for the feedback!

ALA Freestone Review

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We left Freestone for a 2 year period and went to a different vendor to provide our members with a cheaper option. After an unreliable platform, difficulty in producing our own reports we came back and are happy customers.

Vorteile:

Ease of use for administrator, data entry and report running

Nachteile:

Would love to have webinar presenter visible on screen, allow animations in webinar presentations and a more seamless member experience to register, pay for and attend the webinars. Single sign on proves to be confusing for our membership.

Antwort von Community Brands

vor 5 Jahren

Hi Peggy, thank you very much for the review! I am happy to report that presenter webcams are in the works and will be live in the coming months. We will continue to build out new feature updates and enhancements to the member experience.

Easy to use LMS

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

I am not a technical person, but the web based admin side of the Freestone panel is very easy and intuitive to use/navigate.

Nachteile:

Freestone webinars

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Our members highly value education and updates on current events. The Freestone webinars enable us to meet both of these needs quickly and efficiently. Webinar set up is easy and the customer support is awesome. Overall we have been very pleased with our experience and just signed up for another year.

Vorteile:

The software is easy to use and the individual webinars can be set up quickly. The features are customizable, which, for example, enables changes in the look of the viewer when a webinars with live presenters is converted to an On Demand version. The registration process is quick and efficient, and notifications/reminders are easy to add.

Nachteile:

Some of the tabs at the Course level are identical to those at the Chapter level, so knowing what information to add at the Course vs Chapter level can be challenging for someone who uses the software infrequently (e.g., once a month). Customer support is very responsive though, so any questions are answered quickly.

Thank you very much for the kind words about our team and product Janice! We look forward to continuing to work with you and your team and will strive to maintain that high standard in our support, services and software!

Freestone Review

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, even with the challenges, there are ways to work around the majority of them and my engagement with the support team has been wonderful

Vorteile:

I like the fact that everything with a program is housed in one system including the production of CME certificates.

Nachteile:

Some of the challenges I face when using the system is around administrator customization of both the user interface and things that could make event replication smoother.

Antwort von Community Brands

vor 5 Jahren

Thank you very much for the feedback. We are always working to make the admin experience more powerful. With Freestone Viewer an admin has the capability to change the viewer layout, customize the branding and curate all tabsets. Your Account Director would be happy to discuss all the options in more detail. Thank you again!

Fresstone as an Event Partner!

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I have worked with staff at Abila - Freestone for almost 9 years and [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] have all been great to work with! We have used them to record our events in audio format for the last 9-10 years and we added live-streaming and video capture in the last two years. They do a fantastic job - the end product is great, their techs are terrific and when there is a problem they are quick to help get it fixed or to work with us to find a solution. I would highly recommend Abila - Freestone as a partner in any event that needs recording and hosting services!

Vorteile:

The ease of use for the patrons who purchased the packages.

Nachteile:

You are not able to garner a lot of statistics about usage by your patrons.

Thank you very much for the kind words about our team! We look forward to maintaining that level of service! We will continue to look at ways to optimize the learner usage data. Thank you for the feedback Theresa!

Helpful for launching a new online conference

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

Our association had to pivot to online due to the coronavirus pandemic, but luckily we had already planned to take advantage of Freestone through our new partnership with Community Brands and Your Membership. The Freestone platform has made it easier to develop our first-ever online conference because of its features, ease of use and helpful support staff.

Nachteile:

Because the association is using Freestone as part of a larger membership management platform, there has been a learning curve for both our staff and Freestone's staff. As we all become more comfortable with how each component works together, we should be able to reduce issues.

Antwort von Community Brands

Thank you very much for the review Cindy! It was a pleasure working with you all on your event. Glad you found that the team was helpful and the technology was easy to use. Thank you!

Works well and integrates well with our website

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I really do not use customer service because everything works smoothly.

Vorteile:

I like the integration process, very rarely do we have any problems with the customer purchase and them being able to access their course.

Nachteile:

The issue of having to sync the PPT with the speaker.

Antwort von Community Brands

letztes Jahr

Thank you for the review Suzanne! I am happy to hear the system and integration are working well for your organization! I understand that your team leverages the Program Timeline tool to sync your video and slides since they are separate assets. I will have your Account Director follow up with you to get more information on feedback related to this feature. Thank you again!
